Flowlanes for pallets

DLS offers a large variety of pallet live solutions; gravity rollerlanes for several pallettypes (Europallets, Cheppallets, etc).

In order to ensure functionality for both longside leading as well as short side leading pallet orientation, rollertracks are available in many different designs:

  • Full width rollerlanes:
    DLS offers rollers (Ø60mm) in width dimensions from 400mm up to 300mm for these lanes. The high load bearing capacity of these rollers are ensured by heavy duty rollerbearings in combination with full width shafts!

  • Rollertracks consisting out of 2 (narrow) tracks (rollerwidth 100mm):
    Certain pallets or certain pallet orientation require supporting by small rollers at short ctc-distance. Especially for these applications, DLS supplies rollers with a Ø40mm diameter which can be positioned at a 50mm ctc distance. Also these rollers have full width shafts.

  • Rollertracks consisting out of 3 (narrow) tracks (rollerwidth 100mm):
    Identical to the previous solution, however for heavy pallets, DLS can supply lanes with 3 rollertracks, avoiding pallet-deflection which has a negative effect on rolling functionality.
    Just as in previous solutions, rollers in these lanes are equipped with a full width shaft.

  • DLS Twin-Track (2 full width rollers supporting 1200mm face pallets):
    Especially for Chep pallets running 1200mm face, DLS has developed the Twin-track solution; a wide rollerlane existing out of 2 lines 600mm wide staggered rollers. This solution ensures a smooth gravity flow, even for heavy loaded (up to 1300 kg/pallet) Chep pallets.

All rollertracks from DLS can be equipped with several accessories to improve functionality or simplify the orderpicking processes:

  • speedcontrollers;
  • both INDIRECT brakerollers as well as DIRECT brakerollers;
  • separators;
    By separating the first pallet from the remaining pallets, safety for orderpickers is improved;
  • infeed-funnels;
  • endprotectors, backstops;
  • drive-in plates, allowing pallet handling with electropallettrucks;

Depending on equipment which is used for pallet replenishment or orderpicking, DLS will design and manufacture a functional and safe solution (usually combinations of previously mentioned solutions):

DLS Pallet-CAR:

Especially for pallet-types that are difficult to convey on rollerlanes, (for example damaged pallets or plastic pallets), DLS offers the Pallet-CAR solution. The principle of the pallet-CAR solution is oposite to the principle of rollerlanes. By introducing a simple U-profile on wheels (the CAR wich supports the pallet) in a rail, the functionality of these lanes has become completely independent from the pallet-quality, -dimension, -orientation or -loading!
